Intended for present and future operators of mopeds, this curriculum guide is designed to aid in the instruction of safe moped operation and control. Its objective is for these operators to increase their understanding of the various knowledge, skills, and performance factors that affect their safety as well as the safety of other street and highway users. Introductory materials include an overview of course contents, legal considerations (specific to Iowa), need for a moped education course, and information on various aspects of program development and operation, such as financing, insurance, facilities, equipment, program guidelines, teacher qualifications, scheduling guidelines, program evaluation, and instructional objectives. The course is composed of these five units: (1) Operator and Moped Preparation, (2) Basic Control Skills, (3) Safe Riding Practices, (4) Complex Situations, and (5) Moped Care. Each unit has a stated purpose and contains a number of functions (instructional components), each of which has performance, knowledge, skill, and/or attitude objectives. Appendixes include listings of audiovisual and printed materials, list of moped concepts by unit and function, and brief description of some moped skill exercises. (YLB)
